11 – 18 April 2019
Charleston, South Carolina
I will visit picturesque Beaufort, and tour nearby Penn Centre, one of the most significant African American historical and cultural sites in the United States, as well as Hunting Island State Park, a remote, near-tropical paradise that is home to the only publicly accessible lighthouse in South Carolina. I will also enjoy the Bluffton Oyster Trail and complete my visit by visiting Hilton Head Island, voted the number one island in the continental United States, with miles of bicycling trails set amid majestic oaks draped in Spanish moss.
19 – 25 April 2019
The Outer Banks, North Carolina
This mystical strand of islands off the coast of North Carolina is where the first ever English colony was established. Roanoke Island was the location of this outpost but it disappeared without a trace. Feral horses (the ancestors of runaways during the Spanish Colonial conquest) still roam Shackleford Banks and Corolla Beach. The tallest and, perhaps, strangest looking lighthouse in the U.S. is on Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
The Marshall Space Centre in Huntsville is the focal point of the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. I will visit the Space Camp and take part in the lunar landing celebrations.
1 – 5 June 2019
The 5lst International Pow Wow will take place in Anaheim, California.
24 – 30 June 2019
New Brunswick, Canada
This adventure will see me kayaking in the Sea Caves of St. Andrews in the Fundy Bay, puffin watching at Machias Seal Island, foraging for my supper in the Chamook Mountains and salmon fishing in the Miramichi River. It will be EPIC!
